CFC SFL Fulltime Worker for Crossworks
“Bringing the cause of Christ to where the singles are”. This is our mission in CFC Singles for Family and Life. This year 2014, we commit to be more courageous in responding to this call. The gift of corporate evangelization through our Crossworks program is a channel for us to truly live out this mission. I am personally blessed to experience sharing His love through our engagements with Accenture and Habitat for Humanity, Philippines.
Accenture is one of our partners for the Crossworks program for some time now. Last March 12, 2014, we were invited to give a talk to their employees at Accenture in Cybergate. It was a privilege to speak about this topic, “Joy At Work”. It was an intimate time of sharing with them the importance of recognizing that our work is a gift from God and that should encourage us to put value into it through striving for excellence and integrity. There was an emphasis on the importance of having joy at the work place, joy that comes from the belief that our work is a gift from God and that despite challenges and hardships we encounter, peace should be felt knowing that God is there to help us through. The participants were able to share how they feel about their work, and testified also of how they believe God is helping them through their everyday work lives.
The same topic was given when I was given the opportunity to talk to the employees of Habitat for Humanity, Philippines, last March 17. Habitat is one of our main partners for our No One in Need Movement. We are currently working together in the common dream of helping the less fortunate as they tapped us to bring in our Community Development programs to their sites. But this time of allowing to talk to their employees about Jesus Christ was indeed a beautiful encounter of sharing how blessed I am to be a missionary and how important it is to find joy in doing God’s mission. It was humbling knowing that they too are taking on great missions but it was truly encouraging to be affirmed that a lot of people believe in the same cause that we have.
There are more SFL members wanting to bring Crossworks to their workplaces. There are so many opportunities at hand and the Lord is affirming us that truly, He wants to be brought to the workplaces. Be it through LBS, Live Pure, No One in Need or our Live Life Series (just like the talk “Joy at Work”), our goal is that truly, we bring the cross at the workplace, so that Jesus will be glorified even more.
